6:31 am
we worked with this past quarter and i won't go into great detail. in your binder last meeting and i forgot to note this but two dates since the office has become a trust ye we've done 8 loans for a total of 83 $83,000 worth of lending to the small businesses and so very proud of that and want to highlight some of our trends that we see in -- at at the at the counter is food and beverage obviously and manufacturing and sales continues you know to be a trend and certain interesting items such as such as -- bill bill tong a type of south african
6:32 am
jerky and beer and alcohol production is a great interest and technology business continues to be a good business and then children's play and activity centers including workshop rooms art studios and indoor playgrounds tend to be interesting things that we're seeing and the next page we've highlighted out our clients by industry and percentages and a couple of interesting -- i asked the counselors to pull out some interesting cases that are a little unusual or kind of very san francisco and the first one was a woman is a pilot and she wants to utilize drones to help her husband's business in doing soil engineering so and she wants to be based in san francisco even
6:33 am
though likely the drones would be not in san francisco not much soil engineering i mean the kind of soil engineering she wants to do with drones and that's interesting and of course we have a mission native who came to our office because he has sort of developed a -- he worked on some bean ies with the logo system the logo sam sam and he wanted to know how to trade mark his name and get the business going and develop it as a product so then there is -- jane went over the business portal information for you so i won't repeat that and you have that here in terms of the first quarter of 2015 some accomplishments for the office and a couple of elements with the legacy
6:34 am
business registry program commissioner adams talked about a meeting he was part of with dr. hudson and dr. lescent-giles and lisa paul, an attorney who does mostly residential condo conversions and also worked on the commercial side, doing some discussion what's involved taking a look at this so that we can -- so that the staff can start putting together this information to put it in front of you -- what would be involved and i think from that meeting we did really, you know, our next step really kind of work with the small property owners and the real estate industry to kindly of discuss and take a look at well, if we really pushed this kind of program, could it have some other kinds of impact to the real estate market that we may not necessarily think of -- what's the
6:35 am
cause and effect and also for the small property owners -- who would be an incentive for them to subdivide -- you know, do a vertical subdivision and retain the residential portion and be willing to sell off the commercial portion -- so those are some things to take a look at and then i also did have a meeting with sf heritage the historical preservation staff and tim fry and sf travel again doing some exploratory discussions around criteria and also how can we work to work together to sort of leverage what will then be when we establish a legacy business registry how did we leverage it from all 3 entities's perspectives and now that brian is here
